After Swacch Bharat, Modi wants ‘drug-free India’ – The Hindu

Voicing concern over the “devastating” drug addiction menace, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said society as well as the government will have to work together to fight this problem and that a helpline would be set up soon to assist those seeking solutions.

In his third Mann Ki Baat programme on radio, he said the menace is a “national pain” but instead of the youth mired in the problem, drugs should be shunned.

He said drug addiction is “a malaise filled 3D — darkness, destruction and devastation — as it leads to the dark alleys of destruction and devastation“.

The Prime Minister said a thinking process should begin to ensure that the country is rid of this problem and added that he will try to involve celebrities from the cine world, sports and other fields to campaign for a “drug-free India”.

  1. After Swacch Bharat, Modi wants ‘drug-free India’ is thought provoking news!

    “A malaise filled 3D–darkness, destruction and devastation” is a winning mantra! Everybody should be happy with such initiatives, and should co-operate and encourage success.
